1 Introduction
Security systems help to secure life, property, and investments
against fire, theft, and bodily harm. The keypad is an advanced
digital device that offers a variety of features not available with
other systems. Its highly visible, back-lit display and built-in
sounder alert you to a number of system events. Stylish design
and ease-of-use make it ideal for property protection.
Your security company can program the system to meet your
individual needs. Your property is given its own English language
description that appears in the display. Contact your security
company should problems be encountered during testing of the
system.

en | Points
Control Panels
3 Points
3.1 What is a point?
The term point refers to a detection device, or group of devices
connected to your security system. Points show individually at
the keypad with their names. The point name can describe a
single door, motion sensor, smoke detector, or an area such as
Upstairs or Garage. There are two basic types of points,
controlled and 24-hour.
3.2 Controlled points
Controlled points respond to alarm conditions depending upon
whether the system is turned on (armed) or turned off
(disarmed). Controlled points are programmed to respond
instantly to alarm conditions or to provide a delay for you to
reach the keypad and turn your system off. There are two types
of controlled points, part points and interior points.
3.2.1 Part points
Part points often include the exterior doors and windows of the
building (the perimeter). When you turn your system Part On, you
only turn on (arm) the part points.
2016.05 | 05 | F.01U.307.371
Bosch Security Systems, Inc.
Control Panels
Points | en
15
3.2.2 Interior points
These points often include interior forms of burglary detection
devices, such as motion sensors or interior doors. When you turn
your system All On, you turn on (arm) both part points and
interior points.
3.3 24-hour points
24-hour points are always on (armed), even when your security
system is turned off (disarmed). There are two types of 24-hour
points, fire points and non-fire points.
3.3.1 Fire points
Fire points exclusively monitor fire detection devices. They are
always on (armed) and cannot be turned off (disarmed). You can
clearly distinguish fire points from other non-fire points at the
keypad.
3.3.2 Non-Fire points
Non-fire 24-hour points are always on (armed) and you cannot
turn them off (disarm). Panic buttons, hold up buttons, low
temperature sensors, and water sensors are examples of devices
that are typically monitored by non-fire 24-hour points.

en | Areas
Control Panels
4 Areas
4.1 What is an area?
An area is a number of points that are grouped together so that
you can control them together as one unit. For example, if a
security system protected a building with three sections – an
office, a laboratory, and a cafeteria – the points in each of those
sections could be grouped together as an area. With each section
being its own area in your security system, you can turn them on
(arm) and off (disarm) individually, in groups (office and
laboratory, for example), or all together.

17
5 Warning displays and tones
The keypad emits several distinct tones and shows text to alert
you to system events. Additional bells or sirens may also be
connected to your system. Bells or sirens mounted on the
exterior of the premises alert neighbors to emergencies and
provide an audible guide for police and fire fighters.
The keypad has status icons that show the status of the system.
For more information, refer to the status icons overview section.
5.1 Keypad quiets for keystrokes
Pressing any key on the keypad lights the keys and quiets any
warning tones. If you do not press another key within 20
seconds, the keypad lights go out and the warning tones resume.
5.2 Silence the alarm tone
The audible alarm sounds for a specific period of time before it
automatically shuts off. To silence the alarm before the time
expires, simply enter your personal passcode and press [ENTER].
5.3 Entry delay tone and display
When you enter a system that is on (armed) through a point
programmed for entry delay, the keypad emits the entry delay
tone as a reminder to turn off the security system.
Bosch Security Systems, Inc.
2016.05 | 05 | F.01U.307.371

en | Warning displays and tones
Control Panels
Failure to turn off your security system before the entry delay
time expires might sound the burglary tone and could result in an
alarm report being sent to your security company.
Your security company programmed the entry delay times for
you:
My entry delay time is: _______________________________
5.4 Exit delay tone and display
When you first turn on (arm) your system (using your keypad or
keyfob), the keypad emits the exit delay tone, shows Exit Now!,
and counts down the exit delay time. The tone pulsing rate
increases during the last 10 sec of exit time.
If you exit and re-enter before exit time expires, the exit delay
timer restarts the countdown. The restart only applies once.
Your security company programmed the exit delay times for you:
My exit delay time is: _______________________________
5.5 Keypress tones
The keypad sounds the keypress tone (a short beep) when you
press any key. Use the Settings menu to enable/disable the
keypress tone.

5.5.1 Invalid entry (error tone)
The invalid entry tone follows the keypress tone when the
keypress completes an invalid entry.
Some entries require one keypress. Other entries require a series
of two or more keypresses.

6 How the system reports events
Your security system makes repeated attempts to send reports to
your security company. In the event your security system fails to
communicate, the keypad sounds the trouble tone and the
keypad shows a communication failed message. Notify your
security company of the communications failure.
If your telephone, internet, or cellular service is interrupted, your
security system cannot send reports to the security company
unless an alternate means of transmitting the reports exists.
For telephone communication, your security company can
program your security system to automatically disconnect the
telephones when sending reports to the security company. Once
the report finishes, the security system returns the telephones to
normal operation (check with your security company).
Consult with your installer to determine if your security system is
configured with a communicator delay. A communicator delay
aborts reports to your security company if the control panel is
disarmed within 30 to 45 seconds after a burglary alarm is
triggered. Note that fire-type alarms are always reported without
a delay.

Bosch Security Systems, Inc.
Control Panels
How the system reports events | en
21
Consult with your installer to determine if your security system is
configured with a cancel feature. If you silence a non-fire alarm
before the alarm sound timer expires, your security systems
sends a cancel report to your security company.
Consult with your installer to determine if your security system is
configured with a swinger shutdown feature for non-fire alarms
and trouble events. After a programmable number of alarm or
trouble events, your security system automatically bypasses
points.
If your telephone service includes the call waiting feature, your
security company can configure your security system so that call
waiting does not interfere with alarm reporting. Be sure to notify
your security company if you enable call waiting. A system that is
configured for call waiting cannot report alarms correctly when
call waiting is disabled. If you disable call waiting after your
system has been configured for it, be sure to notify your security
company.

7 Alarm events
The system produces several types of events.
7.1 Priority of events
If more than one event occurs, the system sorts them into one of
six groups. The groups are (highest priority first): Fire Alarms,
Gas Alarms, User Alarms, Burglary Alarms, Fire Troubles, and
Non-Fire Troubles. The group with the highest priority scrolls
first. The descriptions and instructions that follow describe the
tones and displays for each group, and explain how to silence the
tones.
7.2 Fire alarms
Fire alarms are the highest priority events. When a fire point
activates, the keypad emits a unique pulsating fire tone.
Evacuate all occupants and investigate for smoke or fire. Ensure
that all occupants know the difference between the steady
burglary tone, the pulsating gas tone, and the pulsating fire tone.
The tone sounds for the duration set by your security company.
The display shows the point text of the first point that went into
fire alarm. Press
/[NEXT] to manually show additional points
(if any) that went into alarm. Events scroll from the oldest to the
newest.

Control Panels
Alarm events | en

7.2.1 Silence fire alarms
Enter your passcode to silence fire alarms. If the system is on
(armed), silencing the fire alarm also turns the system off. The
system now shows Alarm Silenced, and then the number of points
in alarm, and the names of all the points in alarm, in the order of
occurrence.
Your security company can program your system so that users
cannot silence some fire alarms until the fire event clears. Your
security company can program the system so that users cannot
silence some fire alarms until the fire point has restored to
normal (trouble conditions are corrected). The Alarm Silenced
message continues to scroll as a reminder that you can still view
the points in alarm by using the View Event Memory menu option.
If the fire point is still in alarm (faulted), the point goes to trouble
after silencing. Some fire points need to be reset. You cannot
clear fire troubles from the display. When fire points return to
normal, the security system automatically clears the fire troubles
from the display.

7.3 Gas alarms
Gas alarms are the second highest priority events. When a gas
point activates, the keypad emits a unique pulsating gas alarm.
Evacuate all occupants and investigate for gas. Ensure that all
occupants know the difference between the burglary tone, the
pulsating gas tone, and the pulsating fire tone. The tone sounds
for the duration set by your security company.
The display shows the point text of the first point that went into
gas alarm. Press
/[NEXT] to manually show additional points
(if any) that went into alarm. Events scroll from the oldest to the
newest.
7.3.1 Silence gas alarms
Enter your passcode to silence gas alarms. If the system is on
(armed), silencing the gas alarm also turns the security system
off (disarms the system). The system now shows Alarm Silenced,
and then the number of points in alarm, and the name of all the
points in alarm in the order of occurrence.
Your security company can program the system so that users
cannot silence some gas alarms until the gas event clears. Enter
your passcode to clear the scrolling point text from the display.
The Alarm Silenced message continues to scroll as a reminder
that you can still view the text of the points in alarm by using the
View Event Memory menu option.

If the gas point is still in alarm (faulted) then the point goes to
trouble after silencing. Some gas points need to be reset. You
cannot clear gas troubles from the display. When gas points
return to normal (trouble conditions are corrected), the security
system automatically clears the fire trouble from the display.
7.4 User and burglary alarms
User alarms have the third priority. User alarms are user initiated
alarms that include hold-up, panic, and medical alarms, for
example. Medical alarms are not available on UL listed systems. A
steady tone sounds for the time set by your security company.
Burglary alarms are the forth priority. When a burglary point
activates while the system is on (armed), the keypad emits a
steady burglary tone.
Ensure that all occupants know the difference between the
steady user or burglary tone, the pulsating gas tone, and the
pulsating fire tone. The tone sounds for the time set by your
security company.
7.4.1 Silence user and burglar alarms
The audible alarm sounds for a specific period of time before it
automatically shuts off. To silence user and burglary alarms
before the time expires, simply enter your personal passcode and
press [ENTER].

system must be in the normal (not faulted) condition. Viewing
the faulted points helps you find faulted points and correct them
so arming is possible.
The keypad offers two ways of displaying faulted and bypassed
point information. The first causes the faulted or bypassed point
information to scroll automatically through the display. The
second allows you to manually scroll through each individual
point description.

Use the On/Off menu to turn areas All or Part On, to turn areas
off, to extend closing time, or to bypass points.
When you turn on (arm) your security system, there is an exit
delay that gives you time to leave the area without sounding the
burglary tone. When you enter a security system that is turned on
(armed), there is an entry delay that gives you time to turn off
(disarm) the system.
14.1 All On menu
Use the On/Off menu to turn areas All or Part On, to turn areas
off, to extend closing time, or to bypass points.
When you turn on (arm) your security system, there is an exit
delay that gives you time to leave the area without sounding the
burglary tone. When you enter a security system that is turned on
(armed), there is an entry delay that gives you time to turn off
(disarm) the system.
14.1.1 All On
Turning an area All On turns on all points in the area and provides
entry and exit delay. For example, you can turn on the area and
leave through a door (within exit delay time) without creating an
alarm event. When you turn the area All On, the display shows
how many seconds of exit delay time remain to exit the protected
area. Leave before the exit delay time expires.

14.2 Part On menu
Use the Part On menu to turn areas Part On. Turning an area Part
On means to turn on only some of the points, and thus part of

your system so that when you use the Part On function, only the
exterior doors and windows turn on, whereas interior motion
sensors do not turn on.
14.2.1 Part On
Turning an area Part On turns on some points, or part of the
system, in the area and provides entry and exit delay. For
example, you can turn on the area and leave through a door
(within exit delay time) without creating an alarm event.
Turning the perimeter on with an exit delay:

If you enter through the wrong door or fail to turn off (disarm)
before the entry delay time expires, an alarm occurs. If this
happens, silence the alarm (by entering your personal passcode
and pressing [ENTER]) and call your security company to notify
them that you do not have an emergency situation.

14.4 Extend Closing
Your security company might program your system to expect you
to turn on (arm) within a closing window. A closing window is a
duration of time programmed by your security company. Your
security company sets a fixed length of time for the closing
window. Additionally, your security company might program your
system to automatically turn on (arm) at the end of the window.
Use the Extend Close Time option when you need to stay later
than the scheduled close time. If you do not extend the Close
Time and do not turn the system on before the scheduled time,
the system creates a Late to Close event.
At the beginning of the closing window, the keypad beeps and
shows Please Close Now to remind you to turn on (arm) your
system. It remains in the display until you turn on the system, the
close window ends, or you extend closing. Alarm or trouble
messages replace this message in the event of an alarm or
trouble condition. If the alarm or trouble condition clears before
the end of the close window Please Close Now returns to the
keypad display.
Pressing [ESC] silences the beep and clears the message for 10
minutes. If you have not turned your system on (armed) or
extended closing, the Please Close Now message and beep

time at which you would like the reminder tone to begin. This
time is the new beginning of the closing window.
When you hear the warning, you can:
–
Leave before the end of the closing window by pressing
[ESC] to silence the signal, turning on the system, and
leaving.
–
Stay past the scheduled end of the closing window, by using
this function to extend the closing window.

1. Open the Main menu.
2. Press [On/Off] to open the menu.
3. Press [Extend Close] to open the menu.
4. Enter your passcode and press [ENTER].
Notice!

14.5 Bypass
Use the Bypass menu to temporarily take points out of the
security system, and enter them back into the system. Bypassed
points do not create alarm or trouble events, do not detect
intruders, and cannot send any reports. For example, to leave a
window open and turn the system on, you bypass the window
point and then turn the system on.
14.5.1 Bypass Points
You can bypass points when an area is turned off (disarmed).
Points remain bypassed until you unbypass them or some points
return when the area is turned off (disarmed). Use point
bypassing with discretion: bypassing a point reduces the level of
security.

16.3 Test
Use the Test menu to walk test your system, send test reports, or
to review system revision information on the keypad display.
16.3.1 Walk Test
A walk test allows you to test the sensors, keypads, sounders,
and other devices in your system without creating alarm events.
You can review untested points at the keypad to help pinpoint
any problems.
You cannot turn on the security system while in the walk test
mode. Also, the security system does not create alarm events for
points included in the walk test. Points not included create alarm
events. For example, faulting a fire point during an intrusion walk
test creates a fire alarm event.
Beginning the walk test activates the burglary tone for 2 seconds.
A battery test also begins. A successful battery test ends in four
minutes (the walk test continues). If the security system
determines there is a low battery, it generates a low battery
event and continues the test. If the battery is determined to be
very low, the system creates a missing battery event and ends
the battery test immediately.
To test individual detection devices, simply activate sensors and
open protected doors and windows one-at-a-time. As you fault
each detection device, the keypad from which you initiated the
2016.05 | 05 | F.01U.307.371

test emits a brief tone, and for 60 seconds the display indicates
that the point was tested. The tone and display verify that each
detection device is working properly. Keypads within the area’s
scope from which you did not initiate the walk test show Walk
test in progress during the testing.

24 B92x/B91x On/Off menu
Use the On/Off menu to turn areas All or Part On, to turn areas
off, to extend closing time, or to bypass points.
When you turn on (arm) your security system, there is an exit
delay that gives you time to leave the area without sounding the
burglary tone. When you enter a security system that is turned on
(armed), there is an entry delay that gives you time to turn off
(disarm) the system.
24.1 All On menu
Use the All On menu to turn areas All On. Turning an area All On
means to turn on (arm) all the points in that area, for example, all
doors and all windows and all motion sensors.

24.1.1 All On
Turning an area All On turns on all points in the area and provides
entry and exit delay. For example, you can turn on the area and
leave through a door (within exit delay time) without creating an
alarm event. When you turn the area All On, the display shows
how many seconds of exit delay time remain to exit the protected
area. Leave before the exit delay time expires.
Leaving after exit delay expires causes entry delay to start. It may
also cause an alarm on an interior device. Enter your passcode to
turn off the system.
Turning areas All On:
1. Open the Main menu.
2. Press [1] or [ENTER] to open the On/Off menu.
3. Press [1] or [ENTER] to open the All On menu.
4. Press [1] or [ENTER] to select All On Delay.
5. Enter your passcode and press [ENTER]. The keypad shows
Exit Now! and sounds during the exit delay.
6. Exit the area or enter your passcode to stop the system from
turning on. If you turn your system All On and don't exit, the
system automatically switches to Part On.

24.2 Part On menu
Use the Part On menu to turn areas Part On. Turning an area Part
On means to turn on only some of the points, and thus part of
the system. For example, your security company might configure
your system so that when you use the Part On function, only the
exterior doors and windows turn on, whereas interior motion
sensors do not turn on.
24.2.1 Part On
Turning an area Part On turns on some points, or part of the
system, in the area and provides entry and exit delay. For
example, you can turn on the area and leave through a door
(within exit delay time) without creating an alarm event.
Turning the perimeter on with an exit delay:
1. Open the Main menu.
2. Press [1] or [ENTER] to open the On/Off menu.

24.4 Extend Closing
Your security company might program your system to expect you
to turn on (arm) within a closing window. A closing window is a
duration of time programmed by your security company. Your
security company sets a fixed length of time for the closing
window. Additionally, your security company might program your
system to automatically turn on (arm) at the end of the window.
Use the Extend Close Time option when you need to stay later
than the scheduled close time. If you do not extend the Close
Time and do not turn the system on before the scheduled time,
the system creates a Late to Close event.
At the beginning of the closing window, the keypad beeps and
shows Please Close Now to remind you to turn on (arm) your
system. It remains in the display until you turn on the system, the
close window ends, or you extend closing. Alarm or trouble
messages replace this message in the event of an alarm or
trouble condition. If the alarm or trouble condition clears before
the end of the close window Please Close Now returns to the
keypad display.
Pressing [ESC] silences the beep and clears the message for 10
minutes. If you have not turned your system on (armed) or
extended closing, the Please Close Now message and beep

reappear after 10 minutes. To extend the window, enter the new
time at which you would like the reminder tone to begin. This
time is the new beginning of the closing window.
When you hear the warning, you can:

24.5 Bypass menu
Use the Bypass menu to temporarily take points out of the
security system, and enter them back into the system. Bypassed
points do not create alarm or trouble events, do not detect
intruders, and cannot send any reports. For example, to leave a
window open and turn the system on, you bypass the window
point and then turn the system on.
24.5.1 Bypass
You can bypass points when an area is turned off (disarmed).
Points remain bypassed until you unbypass them or some points
return when the area is turned off (disarmed). Use point
bypassing with discretion: bypassing a point reduces the level of
security.

26.3 Test
Use the Test menu to walk test your system, send test reports, or
to review system revision information on the keypad display.
26.3.1 Walk Test
A walk test allows you to test the sensors, keypads, sounders,
and other devices in your system without creating alarm events.
You can review untested points at the keypad to help pinpoint
any problems.
You cannot turn on the security system while in the walk test
mode. Also, the security system does not create alarm events for
points included in the walk test. Points not included create alarm
events. For example, faulting a fire point during an intrusion walk
test creates a fire alarm event.
Beginning the walk test activates the burglary tone for 2 seconds.
A battery test also begins. A successful battery test ends in four
minutes (the walk test continues). If the security system
determines there is a low battery, it generates a low battery
event and continues the test. If the battery is determined to be
very low, the system creates a missing battery event and ends
the battery test immediately.
To test individual detection devices, simply activate sensors and
open protected doors and windows one-at-a-time. As you fault
each detection device, the keypad from which you initiated the

which parts of your security system the passcode can access.
Contact your security company if you don’t know what user
numbers, authority levels, or areas are available.

32.3 Security system limitations
Not even the most advanced security system can guarantee
protection against burglary, fire, or environmental threats. All
security systems are subject to possible compromise or failureto-warn for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to, the
following:
–
Sirens or horns placed outside the hearing range of people in
remote areas of the building or in areas that are frequently
closed off do not provide the intended protection.
–
If intruders gain access through unprotected points of entry,
–
If intruders have the technical means of bypassing, jamming,
the security system does not detect the intruders.
or disconnecting all or part of the security system, the
security system cannot detect the intruders.
–
If the AC power supply is OFF and the back-up battery is
either missing or dead, the security system does not detect
intrusion.
–
Smoke detectors cannot detect smoke in chimneys, walls, or
roofs, or smoke blocked by a closed door. They might not
detect smoke or fire on a level of the building different from
the one on which they are located. Smoke detectors might
not be able to warn in time about fires started by explosions,
improper storage of flammables, overloaded electrical
circuits, or other types of hazardous conditions.

Options | en 213
If your security system’s method of communication is down
(phone line, cellular, or internet problems), reports from the
security system to the security company cannot send.
Communication methods are vulnerable to compromise by
several means.
Inadequate maintenance and failure to test are the most common
causes of alarm failure. Testing the system once a week is
strongly recommended to ensure all system components are
working properly.
Although having a security system might make you eligible for
reduced insurance premiums, the security system is no
substitute for insurance. Warning devices cannot compensate
you for loss of life or property.

32.4 Cross points
Points can be assigned to cross point groups. When a point in a
cross point group detects an alarm, the control panel starts the
cross point timer. If a second point in the same cross point group
detects an alarm while the cross point timer is active, the control
panel sends alarm reports for both points.
If a single cross point detects an alarm and stays in alarm
throughout the cross point timer, the control panel sends an
alarm report only for that point. If a single point in a cross point
group detects an alarm and restores while the timer is still active,
the system sends an unverified event for that point. A second
alarm on the first point does not create an alarm event, but
rather an unverified event.
Cross points are:

32.5 Fire safety and evacuation
Residential fire is a leading cause of accidental death. Most fire
related deaths occur at night when occupants suffocate in their
sleep from smoke and toxic gases, rather than from burns. To
help reduce this risk, implement the following program:
–
Make a home escape plan. Draw a map of your home showing
all doors and windows. Discuss the plan with everyone in
your home.
–
Know at least two ways out of every room, if possible. Make
sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily.
–
Have an outside meeting place (like a tree, light pole or
mailbox), a safe distance from the home where everyone
should meet.
–
Practice your home fire drill at night and during the day with
–
Practice using different ways out.
–
Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t

32.6 Multiple area systems
32.6.1 Keypad scope
Your security company can configure your security system so that
keypads allow you view the status of and control only one area, a
group of areas, or all of the areas in your system. The areas you
can view and the area functions (actions) you can use at a
keypad constitute the keypad’s scope.
32.6.2 Authority levels
Each of your security system users is assigned an authority level.
An authority level determines how much control the user has for
any function that requires a passcode (turning an area on, for
example). The authority level is set for each area in a multiple
area system so that a user can have different levels in each area,
if desired.
32.6.3 Scope and authority levels combined
The functions you can use at a keypad (turning All On, for
example) are limited to the areas you have authority in, and the
areas that are within a keypad’s scope.
Example
Your security system protects a business configured for three
areas (the office, the warehouse, and shipping), and three users
(1, 2, and 3).

which areas turn on when the user turns the system All On from
each keypad?
